For the Macgyver Type

Today’s gift from London was found rather by accident. In the pop-up shop ‘The New Craftsmen’ in Mayfair, there’s a special pocket knife for sale. The handle of the hand-made-in-Sheffield ‘pen-knife’ has been created from used carbon parts of Formula 1 racing cars.

If you have a friend who loves to solve the simple technical problems of everyday life – such as defusing bombs, or building missiles from gas cylinders – the sort of thing that everyone needs to do now and again (just like the all-American action hero MacGyver)… well, do keep this pocket knife in mind as a possible gift. It might come in handy.

With its countless small shops and boutiques, London is an ideal venue for Christmas shopping: but where can you find the really special and unusual gifts? Classic Driver is out and about in the Capital, and will be suggesting a new gift idea every day.
